9.    INTERIOR DESIGN

9.1 Structural Interior Design (SID). The SID includes the selection
and sampling of all applied finishes to complete the building exterior
and interior architectural features.

9.1.1 Design Requirements. The Contractor shall use this criteria and
the drawings for the development of the SID exterior and interior
finishes, materials, and colors. The SID submittals shall run
concurrent with the architectural submittal. The Contractor shall
update the color boards and the UFGS to reflect any of the Government
comments or discontinued manufacturer colors indicated. The SID
finishes accepted at the Final design phase (defined in Section 01 10
12) shall be the SID finishes installed during the construction phase
of the project.

9.1.1.1 In general, the overall philosophy in developing the
Structural Interior Design (SID) for this project should incorporate
(1) a modern, transitional image (2) the creative, yet functional
use/placement of SID materials, finishes, colors, textures and patterns
(3) durable and cost effective finishes to maintain and (4) materials
and finishes that support the health, safety and welfare of the
occupants.

9.1.1.2 A basic neutral shall be used in developing the color palette
and shall be either a cool gray or warm beige. The basic neutral color
will be determined by the Government before the 50% design submittal.
Accent colors, finishes and materials shall be limited to public spaces
defined as restrooms, breakrooms, conference rooms, elevator lobbies
and corridors/secretarial bays. Walls in Administrative areas, and
general support/service rooms shall be a tint of the basic neutral
color. Metal doors, rubber base and door trim color shall be a
neutral color that may either match or contrast with the standard
neutral wall color. Interior wood doors shall be birch doors with a
stained, satin finish and shall be consistent in color, style, wood
species and finish throughout the facility when used. Stained wood
trim and moldings used shall also be consistent in color, wood species,
and finish. All stain finishes shall match except when creating accent
details. Color and finish of hardware shall compliment color of
adjacent door, frame and wall. Color of outlets, switches and cover
plates shall be compatible wall color.

9.1.2 SID Room Finish Narrative. Each interior space shall be
finished in accordance with this narrative. This narrative provides
initial guidance only. As the design becomes more defined after award
of the contract, the Contractor shall provide a comprehensive room
finish schedule, signage schedule, edited UFGS 09 06 90 Color Schedule
and associated guide specifications to define all aspects of the SID.

labeling." Since virtually all electrical equipment that meets the
approval required by article 110-2 of the National Electrical Code is
UL listed, the equipment must be installed in accordance with UL
instructions. The basic rule of the UL Electrical Construction
Materials Directory states that, in general; "The termination
